Praise for Finders Keepers
"Stephen King's superb new stay-up-all-night thriller,
, is a sly, often poignant tale of literary obsession that recalls the themes of his classic 1987 novel
...a love letter to the joys of reading and to American literature... wonderful, scary, moving."-- "Elizabeth Hand, The Washington Post"
"[A] taut thriller about the thin line separating fandom from fanaticism...Bellamy is one of King's creepiest creations--a literate and intelligent character whom any passionate reader will both identify with and be repelled by. His relentless pursuit of a treasure that his twisted thinking has determined is rightfully his generates the nail biting suspense that's the hallmark of King's best work. A sharp closing twist suggests Hodges will be back."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"King's many, many fans will want this, especially those who enjoyed
Misery, but the second volume in King's projected trilogy will appeal to anyone who enjoys suspense and action, or anyone who finds enlightenment in reading about the internal struggle between right and wrong. It's not necessary to have read the previous book to enjoy this one."-- "Library Journal"
TheShining, King swan dives into the looniness lurking at both ends of the writer-reader transaction...the narrative hums and roars along like a high-performance vehicle...a rip-snorting entertainment; one that also works as a sneaky-smart satire of literary criticism and how even the most attentive readers can often miss the wholepoint."-- "Kirkus Reviews, starred review"
"The new book is so good, being at least mildly obsessed with it is understandable. The finest thing about it, however, is that the author has another story to tell before the finale of this excellent series."-- "USA Today"
Now an AT&T Audience Original Series

New York Times
bestseller about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King introduced in
"Wake up, genius." So announces deranged fan Morris Bellamy to iconic author John Rothstein, who once created the famous character Jimmy Gold and hasn't released anything since. Morris is livid, not just because his favorite writer has stopped publishing, but because Jimmy Gold ended up as a sellout. Morris kills his idol and empties his safe of cash, but the real haul is a collection of notebooks containing John Rothstein's unpublished work...including at least one more Jimmy Gold novel. Morris hides everything away before being locked up for another horrific crime. But upon Morris's release thirty-five years later, he's about to discover that teenager Pete Saubers has already found the stolen treasure--and no one but former police detective Bill Hodges, along with his trusted associates Holly Gibney and Jerome Robinson, stands in the way of his vengeance....
has Stephen King played with the notion of a reader and murderous obsession, in this #1 acclaimed bestseller filled with "nail biting suspense that's the hallmark of [his] best work" (
